Kia ora e te Whānau,
This week we received some news that has generated a fair few high fives and even the odd modified fist pump amongst the crew. Gizzy Local has been awarded funding from Creative New Zealand for a project in which six local creatives will dig deep into some issues of local relevance and communicate these with our community via Gizzy Local.
This project will enable us to sustain our mahi to facilitate connection amongst our community as well as help us to move forward with our kaupapa of creating more opportunities for our local creatives.
We believe that the creative process is a really valuable means of investigation, and the creative voice an effective and meaningful way to engage and communicate with a diverse audience. This project gives us the opportunity to demonstrate this at the same times as showcasing six different local artists and their unique approaches to our wider community.
We look forward to introducing these artists with you over the coming weeks!
Enjoy your long weekend..
Ngā mihi nui,
